The Arbours Association is a therapeutic community and organisation operating in North London. It was established in 1970 by Dr Joseph Berke and Morton Schatzman in Muswell Hill, the name drawing on the Hebrew text 'and he shall build arbours over them'. Through establishing a therapeutic community in Muswell Hill, Berke and Schatzman aimed to provide a non-institutional alternative to psychiatric treatment for individuals with emotional, psychological and social difficulties. The residential home accommodated up to eight residents aiming for an even balance of men and women within the community. By the twenty-first century the Association had added to the therapeutic community at Muswell Hill by providing psychotherapy services and training programmes from their head office in Hornsey, North London.
